    We have rabbits in our yard too. So nice to see them hopping around. Our dogs are good with them though, not much chasing!

    They sure are cute! We have a baby groundhog in addition to the mama this year. The deer have been scarce.

    There is one good thing to know about rabbits. As soon as their eyes are open and they are off the nest, they are ready to go and be on their own. The ones you have are really close to ready to go. Very good chance for them. Thanks for helping make their way in the world.
    peace

    EDIT: Mom will leave the nest for extended periods of time (like most of the day) but be close by even though you can't see her. That's the idea. A general rule of thumb if you find a nest is to leave it alone. Mom is near. Watch in the evening and you might see her returning to the nest.
    peace

    We had a nest of baby bunnies a couple of years ago. Mom will leave them alone during the day, but will return in the evening to feed them. She does a pretty good job of covering them up, too. I should look for the pics I took...

    a dog we had when i was a kid found a nest of bunnies in our yard. she kept scooping them up to carry around in her mouth. little bunny legs sticking out the sides like wiggly worms. my mother had to keep sending her back to put them where they belonged.

    it was a miracle, i'm sure, but their mother kept coming back to care for them until they were ready to be on their own. maybe she appreciated the free babysitter. LOL
